Now, you might be wondering if serving your family apple pie is a healthy breakfast choice… While this cinnamon roll apple bake is certainly an indulgent dish, you should be pleased to know that a can of apple pie filling only contains a handful of simple and rather wholesome ingredients: real apples, sugar, food starch, natural flavors, citric acid, and cinnamon. Not too bad!

Just follow these simple steps and in less than 30 minutes you’ll have the most kid-friendly and family-approved sweet treat on the table!

  • Firstly, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and spray a skillet or casserole dish with nonstick spray.
  • Separate the cinnamon rolls and cut each into 4-6 sections. Add them to the prepared casserole dish or 10″ skillet (I used this one). Then, cover with the apple pie filling, cutting any large apple chunks into bite sized pieces.
  • Bake uncovered for 25 minutes. When done, it should be lightly browned, with slightly crisp bits of exposed cinnamon roll and gooey apple goodness throughout.

Drizzle the cinnamon roll icing evenly over the top, and serve warm.

Tips for Making as a Camping Recipe

Baked apple cinnamon roll casserole is even great for making over an open fire while camping. It’s the perfect breakfast for a crisp, cool morning outdoors or dessert treat after a long day of hiking and/or relaxing in the tent!

Just add the roll of cinnamon rolls to the cooler and keep a can of apple pie filling in your pack, and you can cook this yummy breakfast right over the campfire with a cast iron pan.

Combine the 2 ingredients together in the skillet. Then cover the pan with aluminum foil and cook over the fire until ready, about 20-30 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I serve with this cinnamon roll apple bake?

For breakfast I suggest serving with a side of yogurt and perhaps some crunchy granola.

Enjoy this cinnamon roll dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and/or whipped cream on top.

How long can I keep leftovers?

Stored in an airtight container this apple fritter cinnamon roll bake will keep well for up to 4 days in the refrigerator. Reheat leftovers in the oven for a few minutes until warm, for the best flavors and consistency.

Because of the icing I do not recommend that you freeze leftovers. However, if you want to make ahead you can do so without using the icing, then cool and freeze in a sealed plastic bag for up to 3 months. Be sure to check the expiration date on the packaged icing before keeping in the fridge and using later.
